I have always had the multi-function printers (uausally inkjet) at home to do most everything we needed from copying, faxing, and of course printing. Until recently (within the 1st year), we were HP fans all the way. Until I purchased the dreaded Photo 'Smart' printer. From initial setup, he and I just did not get along, it was a pain to setup and printed very slow for regular documents (I would understand that for photos). To keep it short, the paper jammed on day 2 of printing, my printer died (gear mechanism stripped by a single piece of paper - WTF). HP was more than happy to replace the printer and I used if for approximately 6 more months before a paper jam killed me once more - death by jam again. After 1 1/2 hours of trying to unjam the printer, I gave up and put the #@!@#(*$ printer to pasture. Never again will I have an HP in my home. After repeatedly going to Best Buy hoping for some help, I finally focused my search online for the next printer. After 2 weeks, I ended up choosing the Brother MFC-6490cw. It's an all-in-one not only capable, but worthy.
Out of the box, we noticed that the printer was much more sturdy and seemed more 'business capable' rather than a cheap POS for home use. Ininially, the size of the printer is a bit larger than the 'other' printer, but as expected, due to the outstanding scan bed being legal ready - I thought it was awesome, but have the room, so it was as expected. The overall look seems more of a business-capable printer. Very sturdy and good looking too!!! The initial setup and software were very good - a bit technical for some probably, but I had no issues or problems. The install was very easy. The Dual paper feed trays hold 300-400 pages, can easily be configured for A4 and Legal. So far I have printed about 100 pages (word documents, pictures, spreadsheets, etc)- all came out about as expected on inkjet paper. The copy function is excellent, able to feed in a 'no computer' mode acting as a copy machine - very nice.
Probably the best thing is the wireless capabilities. Where my other printer did have the same capability, the brother is able to actually print the document in a quick manner, streaming out print jobs from both my desktop and laptop - very impressed with the Brother Wireless speed and capacity. Our other printer just kept thinking about it, adjust the printhead, then ponder more, ummm move the printhead, then decide to print at which time, my friend the paper feed would jam.
In summary, HP failed us (I was a follower for over 14 years) due to cheap components and poor execution. We began to feel that HP stood for HOPE / PRAY for printouts - of which, it was obvious we were not worthy. And yes, even tried Epson, of which, was too cheapy feeling for us as well. Brother, on the otherhand, (MFC-6490CW) has answered some of our printing prayers and ended the nightmares. The Brother is a VERY CAPABLE small business oriented printer. The printing is fast with good quality, the copy functionality is good, the scanning experience has been easy, etc. On top of the obvious printer capabilities, I have found that the Software interface (Brother Control Center) is easy and simple as well - easy to understand, customizable for specific need, and well, just an awesome package all the way around. To be honest, I am surprised at the quality and performance. I am a true Brother fan with this printer - quality, speed, interface, the whole package!
One of my hobbies is genealogy. Ever try yo scan a census record on a standard flatbed scanner? You have to create two scans, flip one over and piece them together. And you need good (expensive)software to do it. Then when you print it, you have to shrink it down. Well, these hand-written docs are hard enough to read at full size without shrinking them.
Things I can do easily now...
I can scan full open year books, tabloid size census records, marriage registers, large photos. The software provided is pretty good too. It does a decent job straightening crooked scans as long as you have glass edges to work with. I scanned all of my son's pre-school art work. You know, the big artboard projects?
I can take pages from a binder and scan them in from the feeder. The rusult is a many paged pdf doc. Pretty cool. Name the doc not the individual pages. If you use text option when scanning you can erase the hole punches and obituaries from yellowed newspaper are a snap to whiten. You just take the white eye dropper and click the yellow background. Bam! I nice clean black and white easy to read obit.
I hard-wired the networking so I will not address the wireless option. No experience there. Fax setup was a breeze. I can scan and fax no problem.
I tried the lcd print from card option, worked as sdvertised. Copying is easy too. Printing is great.
Overall, I am very pleased. Tons of features for the money. Not sure how it is on ink because I just do not print very much, I prefer to scan and save.
I use this machine all the time. I am very thankful I have it.
I absolutely love my Brother MFC-6490! I am an architecture student so I was really excited that this all-in-one scans,copies, and prints 11x17 size paper. I bought mine factory refurbished for a great price and it was like brand new. I also bought a continuous ink system for it so no more spending tons of money on ink either. At the school, they charge 60 cents for an 11x17 print. In the 4 months that I have owned it it has basically paid for itself.
Also the wireless feature is very nice, when you get the hang of setting it up. I actually share this printer with my boyfriend/schoolmate and it is nice that we can both print to this without messing with any wires.
I would highly recommend this item to anyone.
Until recently, I was an HP Printer fan for many years. Last year, I bought an HP Color Laserjet -only to subsequently find out that HP had put a chip for every color in the printer which only allowed customer to use about 60% of the ink in the cartridge! It then would tell you that you're out of ink and to get a replacement shortly.
I found out from a tech guy that all their chips and their electronic eye can be overridden. Before that, I found that many generic cartridges on my other 4 (yes 4 active printers) would cause problems because HP demanded that only HP cartridges be uses. I don't like propriety which is primarily why I never bought a Mac.
I would rather pay a resonable price for a printer than be stuck with outrageous ink prices - that's what made me look at the Brother printer!
I first looked for ink prices, then decided upon a printer. This printer is very nice but I wish it did duplexing and fax to email. The printout is better than the HP Color Laserjet (remarkable isn't it).
This is the first replacement, and as time and money allow, I will replace all HP printers with printers from companies like brother that are not (yet?) out to rip everyone off for ink. I will again, search for the least expensive ink, then, I'll decide again which printer to buy. I actually think that most printers today are very competitive for output - - so it is the cost of ink that is the biggest item to look for.
I have been using my new Brother MFC-6490CW for several weeks. It was important to me to see what the interactivity was before I wrote a review.
Well - I am very pleased with the ease with which I am able to fax, print and copy my documents. What was especially gratifying was the ease with which the scanner operates. I create several types of cards and this was especially important to me. The pictures that the scanner produces are easily opened and saved in my various programs. I can manipulate them easily and use them in each of my programs effectively.
I would agree with the reviews that I read before purchasing my multitasking Brother. It has delivered as outlined. I look forward to years of interacivity.
